In the Playback options in the Setup menus, you can set commercials to
either be skipped automatcally, not skipped or to display the length
of the commercial.  Also, the 'All" commercial detection method works
the best for me, so you should check to see if you're using that.

I probably still have a few (well, now a whole bunch) gmail invites.
Drop me a line (off list) if you'd like an account.
